  • 19th Century Antique Wood Burmese Ava Enlightenment Buddha Statue - 65cm/26"

    Measures - (Height) 65cm/26"

    Ca. 19th century Burmese Ava Style Buddha. The Buddha is seated on a large lotus petal pedestal in the Bhumisparsa or 'Calling the Earth to Witness' mudr_. With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the Earth Goddess, Thorani.

    Rising from the ground the Earth Goddess wrings the water from her long black hair. By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha's achievement of perfection or nirvana.

    The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow, reinforcing the impression of serenity and spirituality. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. His robes are shown simply as they cascade down his torso. The head is surmounted by a domed 'Ushnisha', rising to a stylized lotus bud finial. This 'Kecil' (pinnacle) is carved from teak wood. The lotus shaped finial atop his ushnisha represents the Buddha's attainment of perfection. His decoration also includes the traditional Thayo practice of decorating sculptures with pieces of coloured glass and lacquered putty.

Received the Buddha, 10th of December so that’s pretty good going I’d say. I think he will do the job very nicely. Thank you sir once more.
